Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement invites applications for mini grants

The Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE) is a member-centric philanthropic laboratory for funders seeking to maximize their impact on democracy and civic life in the United States.

PACE invites applications for its Civic Language Perceptions Project (CLPP), which aims to understand people’s perceptions of the language associated with “civic engagement and democracy” work.

In partnership with Citizen Data, the Rita Allen Foundation, and the Charles F. Kettering Foundation, PACE fielded a nationally representative survey in November 2021 to poll 21 terms commonly used in “civic engagement and democracy” work and to understand how people perceive and associate them. Through this mini-grant program, PACE invites applicants to help to make sense of the survey data in creative ways.

PACE believes this is an important step in democratizing the “meaning-making” process of the data and ensuring multiple voices and perspectives are finding and uplifting insights. This mini-grant program is intended to support people to dig into the survey data to surface new findings and create “bite-sized” content that connects to and advances your work while also helping others in the civic field learn. Through the program, mini-grants of $500 each will be awarded.

Individuals and organizations are eligible to apply.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement website.

Deadline: August 15, 2023 Rolling
